Re: “Hamburger Mary's figures Kansas City's ready for big gay burgers

My partner and I went to Hambuger Marys on 12/28/13 for lunch. It has been 2 years since we had been there. We decided to give this establishment another chance. Our experience in the past was not good. Unfortunately on 12/28/13 our experience was that of utter disgust.

There were 2 tables already seated and served when we were seated. That makes a total of 3 tables of patrons. Not to busy at all. My partners ice-tea was served without ice ($2.50). My draw of beer was warm with no frosted glass ($4.50). We ordered our food and waited and waited and waited. No other customers came in. Remember only 3 tables of patrons. Nearly 30 minutes later our food comes out. We ordered the Hambugers. The buns were not grilled as they should be. They were cold. My onion rings had a hint of heat that lasted about 30 seconds. My partners fries were served room temperature. It was a disaster!

Who ever owns this establishment apparently does not have a restaurant focus. Maybe you should just have a night club and give up on the food part. It is pathetic.
We will not be back and one further comment. The bill came to $34.52 something like that, I gave $40.00 to our server who said he will return with the change. Instead of the change and a $5.00 doller bill he came back with the change and $1.00 bill. I advised him I gave him 2 - 20 dollar bills, and that my change should be the change and a $5.00 bill. He apologized and got me the $5.00 bill. He said the $1.00 was in the $5.00 bill slot in the register. Simple mistake or trying to grab more money from the patron? Your guess is as good as mine.

I did leave the $5.00 for the tip.

Hell yeah, nothing ranks higher on my list of "shit I absolutely REQUIRE from a restaurant" than the ability to bring my goddamn dog to it.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

In my visits to KC last year while planning and installing an art exhibit, I found The Corner Restaurant to be great, the food consistent, tasty, portions abundant, and price fair for the quality. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Mostly I found the menu to be interesting and creative, a cool feat for breakfast and lunch.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Does anyone know if Josh Eans at Happy Gillis is planning on extending its hours?
As for the Woodsweather II diner and nightclub on Vivion Road, good riddance. They acted like they were doing you a favor by letting you eat their lousy food.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Restaurants come and go. Mainly they go when the customers leave and if you're one of the last few to eat at such a place you understand why everyone stopped eating there. Kitchens that prepare from scratch should always be the better places to eat if one is willing to pay the extra cost. But in todays fast food world and cost cutting operations those places have a harder time keeping the doors open and it don't take much to cause them to close. Ahhhh to go back to before the mid 80's when the area had many fine dinning places and the owners knew your name, came by the table to greet you after you was seated and returned when you was done to inquire about you and your dinner. That's how it use to be done, you was made to feel good and the food as well was good. You don't get that at Capitol Grille.

Re: “The year in restaurant shakeups

Personally the "New Corner" was a large dispointment to me.. I found it cold and impersonal .. And the food expenseive for the buck not a great value. Trying to impress folks and just comes off fake and phony .

What did happen to Milbourn's? One day they were open and just as quick, they were gone with no notice, nothing.

Re: “Sake Lounge dances into Olathe

Yeah that's not a great picture, but I eat lunch here a lot and it's really good, and not too expensive. The owner seems like a nice guy so I hope they do well.

Jesus H. Buddha ... that one picture looks like a plate of maki sushi that somebody threw up on. It's a gastronomic abomination.

Re: “Steakhouses: Which icons and newbies are worth the money?

I bet most of you have never been to the Fronier Steakhouse at 93rd & State in KCK. Shame on you snobs! You can get a fine steak for a fair price. Check it out!
